In the news

For the past several days I have received emails with links to newspaper articles inviting people of the community to one of several book parties. These articles were written by what I will call “e-interviews.” I sent a press release, a response was given for some pictures, or “please answer these questions”. Amazing how this interview process has changed in the technological world. It actually works well for me as some times I cannot keep a string of thoughts going in the right direction. It gives me the opportunity to reread, reflect and restate. These articles have been accurate, using my words.

I am a middle aged woman with Parkinson's Disease. When I was first diagnosed I spent a lot of time researching the disease. Seeing a video of a man in the advanced stages of the disease attempting to get out of his chair and then "freezing" as he tried to walk across the room got me off my butt and moving. Great adventures on the Camino de Santiago and with TEAM Pedaling for Parkinson's across IOWA, as well as the day to day adventures of life have lead me to writing. My first novel, a memoir, will be published early 2019. It is called, you got it THE RIBBON OF ROAD AHEAD. Living with the degenerative neurological disease Parkinson's, ULTREIA is a word that guides me. I have chosen it as the name of my business ULTREIA BOOKS. It comes from Latin and old French and means "unfailing courage". In the old days, pilgrims would call "Ultreïa" to each other as encouragement "Go up, go further!" Nowadays we would say "You can do this thing". It takes courage to live with Parkinson's. May I face each day with unfailing courage.
